Korea Times:  Chan-ho Clashes Online With Fan

Linkin Park?

San Diego Padres pitcher Park Chan-ho made headlines here Monday, not for his performance in the Major League, but for his reaction to a fan’s criticism. Major portal sites in the country were flooded with short comments about the 32-year-old pitcher after they carried the story, titled ``Park Has War of Words With a Fan.’’

Things began on Sunday, when a Korean man who revealed his full name, left a message on the pitchers’ official homepage (www.chanho park61.com), in almost threatening tones, demanding better performances from Park. He called on Park to have a new mindset and to get out of the slump of the past few years, saying,  “Don’t even think of coming back to Korea, if you fail to recover the pride of Korean baseball this season.’’

Jeez, it's not as if Chan Ho did fraudulent stem cell research. Give the guy a break.

Park should just go pitch in Corea. They would easily fix all of his starts. It's what they do, those tricky Coreans.

Corea!

May he live up to the standard set by Sun Woo Kim, Byung Hyun Kim and Hee Sop Choi.

Well, obviously, if he's pitching against a bunch of Chicks.

I saw a similar thing on Barry Bonds' site.

At least they didn't threaten to deface his suit, then the #### would really have hit the fan.

Was the fan in question Tim Belcher?
